Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 67

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 2 श्लोक 67

इन्द्रियाणां हि चरतां यन्मनोऽनुविधीयते।
तदस्य हरति प्रज्ञां वायुर्नावमिवाम्भसि।।2.67।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 2.67)

।।2.67।।अपनेअपने विषयोंमें विचरती हुई इन्द्रियोंमेंसे एक ही इन्द्रिय जिस मनको अपना अनुगामी बना लेती है वह अकेला मन जलमें नौकाको वायुकी तरह बुद्धिको हर लेता है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The reason why one who is uncontrolled is devoid of knowledge is now being stated in this verse. Whichever one of the wandering senses the uncontrolled mind follows, that sense by itself enslaves the mind and carries away all discrimination making one restless for the object of desire. As the wind effortlessly snatches away a boat on the ocean whose helmsman is not in control; similarly the senses of one who is uncontrolled snatches away even their mundane intelligence.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

In this verse Lord Krishna gives an analogy on the condition of those who meditate on their senses. One may ask the question, Do not the senses perform the activities energised by the Supreme Lord? This is only partly true because wisdom is an essential ingredient of meditation and when one is pursuing the senses then wisdom is lost and one is out of control like a ship in a storm causing the senses to lose their essential purpose.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

When the senses are rambling about in pursuit of their delights and one allows their mind to follow in hot pursuit after them, then the mind will be deprived of its inherent intelligence and will completely forget all the things that lead to ones highest good. Instead of inducing a strong will to pursue spiritual development one will develop a strong will for sensual enjoyment. Thus Lord Krishna gives this fitting analogy of a ship in the ocean being tossed about violently hither and thither by tempestuous winds. The conclusion of this rational is explained in the next verse.
